Is Wireguard supported on Ubuntu 18.04.1?

Unread post by btb63 » Sat Jan 12, 2019 8:06 pm

I've installed WG on the "Bionic Beaver", but unable configure it.

I've seen other posts where there is talk about kernel compatibility, and wondering now if its able to run on this version.

Checking my installation seems to show its installed. During the installation I noted comments regarding kernel, but didn't save the contents, is there a kernel update I need to enable?

Code: Select all

odroid@odroid:~$ sudo apt install wireguard-dkms wireguard-tools

wireguard-dkms is already the newest version (0.0.20181218-wg1~bionic).
wireguard-dkms set to manually installed.
wireguard-tools is already the newest version (0.0.20181218-wg1~bionic).
wireguard-tools set to manually installed.
0 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 0 to remove and 0 not to upgrade.
Is there a step I have missed, or anyway to proceed? During the installation I noted comments regarding kernel, but didn't save the contents, is there a now a wg enabled kernel update I need to enable?

UPDATE:

I've found a wireguard folder in /usr/src

You might need to build the WG source on the board since the built-in Kernel 4.14 header package is slightly different from Ubuntu official kernel header package.

But I have no experience of WG at all. I hope other people can help you.

Thank you.

I think without a guide to follow that would beyond my level of expertise.

Wireguard is becoming quite popular but still in the development phase so I'll wait and see if it gets easier for the Odroid. I already have it running as a server on my Raspberry Pi so can be happy with that for now.
